Live Each Day as if it were your last
Each Day is a Gift
I live each day as if it were a gift from God, I am fully aware that it may be my last. Although many days look and feel the same, they are not, because we do not always know the ways we impact the world around us.
Living is Simple
Life is not always full of knock your socks off adventure, it is more.
- Teach Someone
- Help Someone you do not know
- Laugh until you cry
- Do something you haven't done before
- Take a hike and listen to nature.....Really listen
- Look at Life through a child's eye
The people who have impacted my life the most have been those who have brought meaning to my life by teaching me how to accomplish a goal, paint a picture or live my life with meaning. The poem IF by Rudyard Kipling was taught to me by a grade school teacher.......It hangs in my home as a reminder of the importance of teaching and a rudder by which to guide my ship.
Help someone you do not know
"A hand out is a hand up." We do not always know the difference we make in someone else's life with a simple act of kindness. Beyond that we experience joy in our own hearts when we give freely without the expectation of something in return.
Laugh until you cry
:Laughter is the best medicine," is really true. I think about the times when we were sitting around the table playing a game or socializing and something happened to make everyone laugh uncontrollably. You know, the laugh you can't hold back because it is contagious!!! The tears fill your eyes and your belly giggles like jello..................Laughter reduces stress and releases endorphins that make you feel good!!!
Do something you haven't done before
It is interesting to learn new things, take on new challanges and view the world from a different perspective. Exploring is the best way to learn.
Take a hike and listen to nature
Look at Life through a child's eye
Children see the world with wonderment, full of possibilities without judgement. I believe our children can teach us more about life than we can comprehend.
